Architectural detail can be found throughout, including the original Rhodesian teak and Oregon pine floors, porthole windows, mottled glass, antique cedar-lined closets, and tiled bathrooms. Guest and common rooms are accented with colorful textiles, archival photographs, beadwork and other handcrafts by local artisans.

Verified reviewpoor

This has to be one of the most disappointed places that I have stayed in. We were kept stranded outside when we needed to check-in as the host was late. The rooms upstairs have a damp/mouldy smell. We were not given enough toilet paper and the B&B contains a book of rules including restrictions on the WiFi use. On the morning of the day we checked out the WiFi did not work. For what we paid It was not good value for money.

Another quaint and charming small guest house that seem to be a speciality in South Africa. Yolishwa fixed brilliant eggs and mushrooms. Nadeem was an engaging guide and really gave me a strong sense of the surrounding areas and culture. I left with a smile on my face.
